Sports Mole examines Real Madrid's chances of recording their first victory away at Bayern Munich tomorrow evening.

Bayern Munich will be looking to extend their unbeaten home record against visiting Real Madrid tomorrow evening.

The Spanish side have never managed to win against Bayern in Germany, drawing once and losing on the other eight occasions.

If Los Blancos are to register their first win on Bavarian soil, they will have do so without the services of Ricardo Carvalho and Lassana Diarra through injury.

However, Karim Benzema and Kaka are expected to return to the starting lineup following a spell on the bench.

Philipp Lahm, Franck Ribery and Mario Gomez are likely to be reinstated to the home side's lineup, while Bastian Schweinsteiger will return from a one-match suspension.

The two teams have met in four previous European Cup semi-finals, with Bayern emerging victorious on three occasions.

Current form:

Bayern: WWWWLD
R Madrid: WWWDWW

Possible lineups:

Bayern: Neuer; Lahm, Boateng, Badstuber, Alaba; Schweinsteiger, Kroos; Robben, Muller, Ribery; Gomez

R Madrid: Casillas; Arbeloa, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo; Khedira, Alonso; Di Maria, Kaka, Ronaldo; Benzema

Sports Mole says: 2-1
